* Part of the premise in ''Webcomic/TryingHuman'' is that TheGreys are conducting an extensive research program, abducting humans on a precise schedule. The other part of the premise is InterspeciesRomance, and lots of it.

* ''Videogame/EarthBoundBeginnings'' uses this twice. Nearly every adult resident of Youngtown was abducted by aliens at some point before the protagonists arrive there, leaving it to become a NeverLand populated almost entirely by children. And in the game's [[spoiler:BackStory, the protagonist's great-grandmother and great-grandfather, Maria and George, were abducted and held for an unspecified amount of time by a SufficientlyAdvancedAlien race. Maria became the [[ParentalSubstitute surrogate mother]] of the then-infant BigBad Giegue and raised him to adulthood, while George studied and presumably gained the ability to use [[PsychicPowers PSI]], well against the alien race in question's wishes. George eventually made it back to Earth, but Maria wasn't so lucky.]]

* Wild animals captured by humans, examined and tagged, then released again. From their perspective this trope might be close to TruthInTelevision.

* Happens to Fry in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' when his nose gets stolen by alien poachers. Judging by a new report, alien abduction is a perfectly normal occurrence in 31st century life.
-->'''Linda''': Alien abductions: Until now, a harmless nuisance. But recently they've taken on a sinister dimension as unsuspecting victims are returned ... without noses.

* Played with and averted in ''{{Series/House}}''. A child patient is being treated due to having beliefs that he was abducted by aliens. Turns out that it was false, but not because the kid was making stuff up: [[spoiler: He actually did believe it due to the "abduction memories" being a side-effect of his birth. He was originally supposed to have a twin brother who he absorbed in the womb.]]

** ''Series/StargateAtlantis'' reveals that a rogue Asgard faction called the Vanir have been doing this for centuries in the Pegasus Galaxy for the same reason as Loki. Unlike Loki, they have partially succeeded and have outlived their Ida Galaxy cousins. However, thanks to the Wraith, they're stuck on their poisonous planet and are unable to leave the galaxy.
